There was a poltergeist party on the shoulder of the road, and the traffic passing swerved in all directions
There was a pale man carting off the bodies that we'd built, and in the awful chaos he escaped detection

And you
lay me down
You'd lost some weight
You'd kissed some sad, sad men
And you
called me by some soundless name,
this name I didn't use to know was mine

And the noisiest of ghosts seem to be living in this car – they beg me DRIVE US TO THE BEACH DRIVE OFF OF SOMETHING
They curse the borders with their bodies like spiders in a jar
They ache like words that I am on the verge of mouthing

And you
lay me down
You'd changed your style
You'd made some difficult decisions
called me by some soundless name,
this name I'd almost forgotten was mine


from 2013 - 2005 (demos and home recordings), released April 18, 2016
